Size does matter – and sometimes for certain things, you want it large, while others prefer it to be as small as possible, depending on the context and situation which we are talking about. VIA’s latest nettop that falls under the barebones category would be the VIA ARTiGO A1150, where this dual-core PC kit is a DIY package that targets enthusiasts who love to spend their spare time tinkering around with computer parts. Touted to be the next generation of ultra-compact desktop computing, this can be said to be the tiny little PC that could – after all, there is a dual-core 1GHz Eden X2 processor running underneath the hood.
The VIA ARTiGO A1150’s chassis measures a mere 5.7″ x 3.9″ x 2″, that amount of storage space inside is able to cram a quarter of USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, GbE LAN, a trio of audio jacks, and integrated 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi – which is optional. On your part, you will need to supply a 2.5″ SATA hard drive or solid state drive, as well as providing up to 4GB RAM. Other than that, the VIA ARTiGO A1150 is good to go, and while we await word on pricing and availability, you might want to start saving up for it.
